Oh that's all right then.. BBC shows its colours again

A fascinating snippet on the BBC's atitudes over Iraq is hidden in this piece by Con Coughlin in the Sunday Telegraph

"(The BBC, indeed, has told its correspondents that, given his leadership was endorsed in a referendum, they should not refer to him as a dictator.)"

That would be the infamous referendum conducted in October 2002 in which
"Just hours after the polling stations closed across Iraq, Minister of Information Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf confirmed that 11,780,000 registered voters had cast a ballot – and not a single "no" had been counted"
The BBCs minds are so broadminded their brains have dropped out.
